Welcome to Mr. Valentin’s (Mr.V) home for 9th grade World History & Geography and 11th grade United States History course at Stuyvesant High School. The idea for this website and it’s original incarnation in 2000 was developed by former students of mine. These wonderful webmasters, however, graduated in June ’02 and left me holding the ‘tech bag’. This is the most recent of numerous revisions since the site’s inception.
I will continue to tweak the structure and content as time permits so that it will continue to enrich classroom instruction and add content depth. What will never change is the site’s role in providing pertinent course information for high school students. Additionally, content will continually be updated to reflect New York State’s mandated curriculum and sound pedagogy.
The content presented in the site is offered to student and teacher alike within the rules established by Creative Commons License- Attribution & Non-Commercial Use.

In return, please offer constructive criticism so that the ultimate goal of this website can be brought to fruition within my limited days.
All elements of this site, minus the professional and academic values upon which it is founded, are subject to modification. Such modifications will be driven by academic requirements, student needs, and the technology at hand.
